About Lucy Branton

Hi, I’m Lucy Branton, owner and founder of Dogholics, and for as long as I can remember I have adored animals, in particular dogs and horses. I have spent my life in training and caring for them.

My first dog as an adult was a Sher Pei, at the time the vet told me I had acquired one of the most difficult breeds to train. This didn’t put me off and within a few short months, me and my Shar-Pei Louie were performing in an obedience display team with the Hull Dog Training Club, achieving gold standards in training. My next Shar-Pei became adept at agility, obedience, and rally, even running alongside a horse!

Having a natural affinity with dogs and training, I soon set up a local dog training club, as a hobby, it wasn’t long before this became a well-used enterprise.

I had to face it I was addicted to dogs! I knew the only way I could get my fix for my addiction was to turn it into a profession and took up dog grooming. I quickly achieved City & Guilds introduction levels locally, then taking further training in London, proving to be natural I achieved distinctions and merits, passing the Level 3 Diploma in Dog Grooming. I still wasn’t satisfied and started teacher training, later becoming employed at the Hull College where I originally trained.

All of this has led me to want to help others, who like me love their dogs. To help dog owners and their dogs realise their potential, creating a space where dogs and their owners can come together, learn and build amazing bonds with each other.

There is no love more addictive than a dog’s love and as dog owner all we ever want to do is to give them back the same love they give us. Here at Dogoholics our mission is:

To help all dog owners learn how to care for their dogs in the right way giving them back the love and loyalty they so freely give to us every day of their lives!

You’re gonna have to face it….. You’re addicted to dogs!

Lucy is a brilliant groomer. I have taken my Cockapoo to numerous groomers in Hull but nobody has been able to master him like her. Nothing was too much trouble. Definitely will be going back and will be recommending to all my family and friends. Thank you so much!

My Bailey’s first lesson with Lucy was great. Lovely environment and Lucy really taught me and Bailey so much in just one lesson. Got our next lesson booked next week and can’t wait to learn more. Highly recommend for all you dogoholics.

Thanks for giving Kenny the full 5 star treatment he deserves. A Beautiful handstrip nails clipped and bathed Lucy was kind and gentle and professional Kennylad loved his pamper session. I cannot recommend Lucy enough.

We’ve been to see Lucy three times now and I honestly couldn’t fault her. I’ve been so pleased with what she’s done every time I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her! She’s good value for money and it’s safe to say we won’t be going elsewhere. Thank you so much!
